Huge networks simulation remains to be a challenge, although various network simulators are in place. In this paper, we demonstrate a scalable network simulator architecture (SNSA) that brings together the four major areas of networking research: network modeling, simulation, measurement and protocol design. SNSA is a tool for computing scalable design of experiments through components such as a discrete-event simulation engine, default and extensible model designs, and a state of the art XML interface. Developers are able to design and implement their own protocol designs, network topologies and modeling scenarios. Finally, we provide sample simulation model for transmission control protocol (TCP)
